SATURDAY, JUNE 25, 1949 Bl.YTHEVILI.E (ARK.) COURrER NEWS PAGE THREE Mississippi County Schools Emphasize Visual Education By AnaWrtdman Courier News Staff Writer If visual education is a sign of educational progress, then Mississippi County IB one of the most progressive counties in the slate. And It plans to progress even further in Ihe next year, Since last fall the county has amassed a library of 89 16 mm. films for us« in its schools, m contrast to most other Arkansas counties which have no films at all. "I know of only 'two or three*— counties in the slate that even county supervisoi of schools. He noted, however, that several cities, such as Pine Bluff, have flip) collections. Everything from the bird '"Five Colorful Birds") and the bees ("The Honey Bees") to politics ("How We Elect Representatives"! has been recorded via the motion picture camera for easier teaching. This kind of teaching sticks longer, too, Mr. Mayes said. "Teachers have found the films helpful," he snid, "and it Js expected that more use will he made of them-" County schools obtain use of the films by'subscribing to a $100 membership. Blytheville. Osfeola. Lux- orn. Anno: el. Manila, Dell. Wilson, nurdctte. Keiser, and Lcach- villc have purchased memberships Schools Provide Kfiuipment Each -school has its ov.n equipment for shotting the movies, including screens to shut out the light. • "The ideal, 1 ' commented Mr. Mayes, ''is to have every teacher able to operate a projector and every room -suited for projection. The county is approaching that ideal." A reel of film costs about $45 anti the county is purchasing its library under a ""lease to own" plan, whereby the films are leased and at the end of five years will belong "Jio the county. Technicolor lias come to the classrooms, too, with some of the films colored. They are all equipped for sound and are used through all the grades, Time out for movies is arranged in teaching units throughout the county so that what the films teach and what the textbooks teach can b« correlated. A three-month schedule is worked out between the member schools so that each knows what films are due and when at his school. Although plans for the coming year have not been made. Mr. Mayes Indicated that the county wants" to buy more and varied films. Committee Selects Films L. H. Autry. Burdelte.. Phillip Deer, - Wilson, and A. E. Caldwell, Dell, principals of their respective schools, make up .the % committee on films of the Mississippi County Schoolmasters Club. Another visual innovation provided for the school system is the slide projector, which Mr. Mayes described as a "good" teachin device. "If a child asks a question, the teacher can refer back to the slide," he noted, "which Is harder to do with a movie." Business and math subjects are about the only ones which haven 1 ! been filmed in the county's sor^s ^ The cultures of Mexico. Brazil Hawaii, Alaska, even of the Eskimos, is on film for pupils to see Even atomic energy is explainec in the movies and physical education, with a picture on "Beginning Tumbling" comes in (or its share of photography. Will movies ever replace the textbook? Well, Mr, Mayes admitted visual education is playing a bigger part in our educational system, but it will be a long time before we do away with books. over Chairmanship Of GOP Party Group Brewing SUCCESS STORY - Mrs. Pcrle Mcsta, wealthy queen of Washington society and longtime friend of the Trumans, was named by the President to be U.

Legislator Says Truck License Fees to Decline LITTLE ROCK. June 25. (AP) — The act of the 1949 legislature increasing truck license fees actually will result la a loss of revenue to the state, Rep. James A. Gipson o: Benton .charged today. . Gipson. who filed the law suit at tacking IKE of cash funds by state institutions, said the jokev" in the truck license bill Is the $5 fee for semi-trailers. "These big outfits which liave two or more trailers for each tractor (pullinjr unit) will pay the load fee on only one trailer for each tractor." he said and will pay only S5 each for the extra trailers." W.H.L Woodyard. motor vehicle division supervisor for the State Revenue Department, denied that the act would result in a revenue loss. Tie said tha^ some of Ihe large companies which do have more than one semi-trailer tor each tractor would be required to pay the load fee on only one trailer. He nrtdod that the increased fees under the act will bring the total cost to such operators up to or above the amount they have been paying. Woodyard said the truck license bill might not produce the 53,500,000 Increase which it was estimated it would do. "We won't know exactly until we have had experience with the bill but I think it will bring in a substantial increase," the motor vehicle supervisor said. SALT LAKE CITY, June 25. W) —A fight between backers of Har- Id E Stassen and Gov. Earl Waren of California over the choice 3! a new chairman appeared de- -eloplng among young Republicans ier«. At the same time, an APL labor eader told the Young Republican National Federation bluntly that ts leadership needs "a complete change 'in thinking" to the point where it will show some "respdnsi- bllity for the public welfare." Josep D. Kennan, director .abor's League for Political Education fAFLl fired a critical blast at GOP leaders—including Senator Robert A. Taft of Ohio and House Minority Leader Joseph Martin of Massaschusetts — as the convention's second lay's sessions got underway. There seemed little doubt tha Keenan also was aiming at GOP National Chaiinian Hugh I). Scott Jr.. here for the sessions, when the APL official asserted in a prepared talk: "Turned Deaf Ear" If recent elections have indi catcd that the majority of Ameri can voters fee! that the Republican Party and its candidates show • lack of responsibility tor the uublL welfare, it is because Republican leaders and many Republican can didates have turned a deaf ear I the urgent requests of tile Amcri can people." Keenan's Ecoldiii", however, wa overshadowed by the battle for tl chairmanship between candidate connected In the past with Warren the 1948 vice presidential nominee and Stassen, former Minncsot ' governor and now president of th University of Pennsylvania. Warren backers were lining u behind Laughlin E. Waters, Calif ornia state legislator who has beei helping carry Ihe ball for Warren- tax program Irr his state. Water's opponents charge, how ever, that he has been hand-picket by Republican National Committe leaders, including Scott, for th chairmanship. That's a tough charge in thi convention, where the sentimen seems almost unanimous that th youngsters — who range in ng through 40—ought !o cut loose en tirely from the party's "old guard Some of the delegates who \voul like to see Stassen get anothe shot at the GOP presidential noil ination in 1952 are backing Ale Aekcrmati, Jr.. of Florida.

Monarchists Still Dream of King in Bavaria MUNICH—(/T)—Diehard monarch- sts stil) dream of reviving a soiith- 3erman kingdom of Bavaria. Their dn» would be Crown Prince Rupp- .eclit. 80-year-old son of Bavaria's ast reigning king. Ludwlg. Ludwig tosl his throne in 1918 ilong with all other royal German rulers in the post-war collapse of Kaiser Wilhelm's imperial Belch. Since then Bavaria has been just another German stale. Its governors were elected, not born into office. I'.'s once rich and powerful monarch seemed to be only a dead relic of an age gone by—fit only for museums which its castles had become- But the loyal followers of tile throne continued to dream. They gave a convincing demonstration of this recently when Crown 3 rince Rupprccht celebrated his 1 80th birthday. Thousands of peo-; )le from all over Bavaria turned I out to pay him homage. Cclebra- ion turned into a series of truly royal receptions. i The monarchists made one big political attempt recently to realize their dreams In Ihe confusion of Germany's second defeat they sensed a chance to recoup what they , had lost in the first world war. In 1946. they formed a political party. 1 They called it the "Koenigspartei", or "king's party." Almost overnight 10.000 persons from the city of Mun- i ich alone rallied to the royal colors, j All over Bavaria the movement: spread. | U. S. Military Government soon stepped in and banned the party on ' the grounds that it had become a i "playground for fascist elements."! Party or no party, however, the i monarchist dream continued to| smolder. Monarchists ami monarchist sentiment emerged in several other parties'. Strongest supporter of Bavarian monarchism now is the Bavarian Party, a minor but growing organization which exploits the traditional desire of Bavarians to be independent from all the rest ol Germany, Tribunal to Decide Oklahoma Phone Kate OKLAHOMA CITY, June 25 (API — Southwestern Bell Telephone Company will lake its applications for rate Increases in Oklahoma the State Supreme Court Tuesday.
